LuckyBackup เป็นโปรแกรม (GUI) สำหรับ backup & synchronization ซึ่งพัฒนาจากโปรแกรม rsync ซึ่งเป็น command line โดยโปรแกรม LuckyBackup เป็นโปรแกรมฟรี (Free Software) ภายใต้ GNU

LuckyBackup สามารถรันได้ทั้ง  Graphic mode หรือ command line ซึ่งต่างจาก rsync ที่ต้องใช้ command เท่านั้น

* Easy and safe creation of a remotely located clone of your existing data. After the first backup of the source directory, LuckyBackUp will copy only the changes made. Links, permissions, time stamps, owner, and groups are preserved unless stated otherwise.
* You can sync files between directories, it’s a handy tool if you work on more than one machine. You do not have to keep track of the last directory you modified.
* The tool ensures data safety by first checking if the database that you have declared actually exists.
* There are a lot of options for users tabbed as Simple and Advanced.
* An exclude button lets you exclude any file or folder from the transfer process.
* An only include option will let you backup only specific files, folders, and patterns within your source directory.
* You can alter the default rsync options that LuckyBackUp provides.
* Use remote connections either as source or destination folder.
* Commands can be executed before or after a specific task.
* A very handy “restore” function to undo unintentional deletes or mistakes.
* Simulate an rsync in a dry run before actuating the actual job.
* You can create and save multiple profiles so that you don’t have initiate a task from scratch every time you wish to perform it.
* You can schedule tasks under already created profiles via cronjobs.
* A logfile in your home folder records all tasks.
* You can run the application either via the GUI or the command line.
